# 6 Cards a la Kate
The under the sea was consistent and so beautiful.
That background rocks.

The attention to detail inside and out was remarkable.  The partial
scene looks like a painting on driftwood which makes it look so dreamy....



# 10 Twisted Witch
I really enjoyed the attention to detail.. and the craftmanship
was outstanding, her pictorial tutorial was an excellent thought
process. Love, love, love.

Hi! I am Nandini Karmarkar, a stay-at-home mom of two with a passion for all kinds of crafts. I am a trained Textile Designer and also designed costumes for films and ad films for a while. I quit work when my daughter was born and trained as a craft teacher after couple of years. I love teaching children and hold workshops for them every summer.  My card making style is very CAS. I love trying new techniques in stamping and die cutting and also finding imaginative ways to stretch my supplies. I learnt sewing, embroidery and crochet from my mother and grandmother as a child. I like to add elements of these crafts to my cards as well. My other interests include                                                                                  reading, music and movies.
